LARGE FAMILY COSTCO GROCERY HAUL Fall 2022

Here are the things we buy in bulk at Costco during the Fall.

Chop up your pre-cooked chicken.

Combine the soup, sour cream and chilies in a medium bowl. Mix well.

Add the chicken and corn to the bowl and stir.

Grab your crock insert. This 6 qt oval programmable slow cooker (aff) is my favorite!

Pour half a can of enchilada sauce in the bottom of the crockpot.

Layer half of the tortilla shells over the sauce. You can use corn or flour, you choose.

Spread half of the chicken and soup combination over the tortillas.

Sprinkle with half of the shredded cheese.

Then repeat the steps using the remaining ingredients, starting with another layer of the enchilada sauce.

Once you’ve completed two layers, pop the lid on it and cook on low for 4-5 hours or on high for about 3 hours. This is going to cook pretty fast because everything is really already cooked.

What I love about the programmable slow cooker is once the cook time is up, it moves to warm and waits until you and your family are ready to eat.

Plate it up and dinner is done.

  3. It won’t let me print this unless I have a pintrest account? That’s not really fair, I wanted to try it, but I’m not going to join a website just to do so….

    1. Hum. That is really interesting. The recipe print function is unassociated with Pinterest.

      Are you using the print button that is in the light purple box after all of the recipe pictures? The print button is next to the five gold stars.

      If that does not work another option would be to go to the very end of the post and there is a row of icons right above the comment section. You will find an icon of a printer, an envelope, a star, Facebook like icon, etc. If you hit that printer icon it will let you print from there as well.

      What print button did you use the is forcing you to join Pinterest?

      1. I clicked the print btton in the purple box… Then it opened in a new window with a new box at the top… But when I saw your reply, I came back to look again, and when I clicked the button in the purple box it worked… Maybe it was just a glitch??

        Also, I’m sorry I seemed so rude in my post. I’m dealing with the husband being away and a 20 month old with Chicken pox… And an A/C that’s on the fritz… Definitely been a case of the Monday’s around here!

        1. No worries at all. I was concerned there was a glitch somewhere and wanted to know exactaly how the process worked from your perspective. Glad it worked the second time around. I added a Pinterest button yesterday at the top of each posting area, and it has not been functioning right. I was afraid it was effecting the print feature somehow and that really worried me.

          Glad it printed. Hope you enjoy the meal it is really yummy.

          Chicken pox- no fun.
          Hubby gone- no fun.
          Broken a/c- no fun

  5. Wow never thought to do enchiladas in the crock pot! what a great idea for potlucks!

  6. Yum! I can’t believe that I have all the ingredients on hand! This may become supper tomorrow night! Thanks!

    1. Awesome Melinda!

      Let me know how your family likes it. 🙂

  7. Oh. My. Goodness. I want to make this right now!!! Too bad it’s nearly 11pm… 🙂 Guess I should wait until tomorrow.

    Thanks for such a yummy-sounding recipe! I’m here from WFMW–happy Wednesday!

  10. Looks really good and easy. I like the method because it could be varied in all kinds of ways.

    1. Exactly, Tiffany Flexible recipes are good. 🙂

  11. What size crockpot did you do this in? Small or large?

  12. This sounds really good! I’m pinning for later!

  13. Teresa Ollom says:

    I just put this together but I didn’t have any chilis or sour cream. I softened 8 oz of cream cheese and added some finely diced onion and a jar of pimentos. Also added some more seasoning (cumin, minced garlic, S and P) YUM!! Can’t wait to have it!!!

    1. Teresa- that sounds yummy. Let me know how it turns out.

  14. Lindsey Whitney says:

    Making this tonight. Thanks!!

    Lindsey @ GrowingKidsMinistry.com

    1. Awesome, Lindsey. I am excited to know how much your family loves it. 🙂

  15. I love crockpot recipes and this looks delicious!

  17. Quick question – what size can of “cream of chicken soup” did you use?
    Thanks! Sounds SO yummy, can’t wait to try it!

    1. Pattie- the traditional 10 oz size. 🙂

  18. junassicpark says:

    I make something VERY similar to this in the oven, so I’m rating your recipe before trying it. 🙂 I never thought of trying it in the crock pot!

    Your recipe should work equally well with cooked/drained ground beef or turkey or a combo of both ground meats.

    1. Junassicpark- your variations sound delicious!

  19. I made this last night and it was amazing!! We aren’t fans of corn tortillas so I used 5 flour ones instead and it worked great! Could be my crock pot but 4 hrs on low was plenty of cook time and lead to burnt edges. Will probably cook for 3 or 3.5 next time. Thanks for the great recipe!!

  20. StephieD, i’d be careful about joining Pinterest too. I did it a few months ago {less than a year, i think!}, because it was the only way i could save a “poster” that i created for a freebie deal, which i did not then want to delete… Now i have over 60 boards, & am a total PinAddict!! 😉 {BUT: i DO use the pins i pin/re-pin!!} 😎

    1. NOTE: if you would like to check out some of my boards {& i do hope you will!!…you can click on them, & get to the link pages, WITHOUT having to join Pinterest!!} ~ here is my profile: http://pinterest.com/noreenelaine/ ~ C’mon over & check me out, everyone!! 😎

    A coworker made this and brought it in for a potluck recently. She used black beans instead of corn and it was so good that I couldn’t stop thinking about it so it’s in the crock pot now! I used black beans AND corn. I also used some chopped fresh cilantro mixed in the soup and mozzarella mixed with cheddar. I can’t wait!!

    1. Wow, that is awesome. Makes me so happy. So glad you enjoyed it and your modifications sound awesome.

  22. Have this cooking right now! It’s what I would call ‘comfort’ TexMex and SUPER easy!
